A drawing of my face. I'm wearing a black shirt and a green cardigan, smiling slightly, with my hair down and falling partly over one shoulder.

Hi, I’m Leonora Tindall. I’m a full time student in computer science at Beloit. I build and break hardware and software, both digital and analog.

You can find me on the Fediverse, on GitHub, on Patreon, at nora AT nora DOT codes, and everywhere, with my PGP Key and other keys.

πŸ’Ό Experience

I’ve worked at several companies, including two professional software engineering positions and two major volunteer positions.

Google Summer of Code with Freifunk during Summer 2019.

Software Engineering Intern at CancerIQ, Inc. during Summer 2018.

Open Source Software Development for Dr. Steve Huss-Lederman from Fall 2017 to May 2019.

See my full resume for more, including volunteer positions and college work experience.

πŸ’» Code

I write systems code in Rust and Go, scripts and utilities in Python and Lua, and websites in HTML5, CSS, JavaScript, and TypeScript. I’ve started, or contributed significantly to, many open source projects.

πŸ“œ Writing

I write about projects I work on and try to record and synthesize what I learn about tech, society, and more.

I’ve written tutorials on type systems and what can be done with them (for instance, session types), binary reverse engineering, and application security topics like embedding malware in PDF files.

I’ve also written about topics ranging from hacker superstitions and how spending way too much time customizing my desktop is productive, actually to repairable hardware and free software and why it matters, for individuals and for society as a whole.
